Dunnet Head, also known as Easter Head, is the most northern place on the mainland of Great Britain overlooking the Pentland Firth 90 meters (300 feet) below which connects the Atlantic Ocean to the North Sea
In addition to a wonderful ocean view, it features a lighthouse built in 1831 by famous lighthouse designer Robert Stevenson. From Dunnet Head, you can see three of the Orkney Islands and The Old Man of Hoy. Since 1989 its been run remotely so don’t expect to see any quaint light keeper around, but if no other tourists are there you may enjoy some solitude and a cool ocean wind.
Old military buildings can be found near the parking lot since this sea route is important for shipping.
